I'm supporting buying smoke at the 0.1BTS mark now. This is in the hopes that others will follow suit and that we can pump the price up to around 0.2BTS within a month or so. This requires very little money from each of us ($5/mo per person.) to achieve. If smoke is so valuable to us, why are we letting it's price drop so low?
Now, I know we could potentially just be boosting it for a large stakeholder to dump off, but the fact is, that smoke goes to us in that event. It's no longer theirs. They're no longer a large stakeholder if they dump a majority of it off... They can't continually do this at a sustainable rate, at the price rate we're willing to pay, either. That would mean a fundamental shift in all of the holdings, new whales, new movers, new shakers, and them being left with a fraction of the power they had, to make what they made.
If we want to see smoke be higher in price, we need to be willing to pay a higher price for it. If we aren't willing to buy it at a certain rate, then why should other people? We need to look at them like they are ourselves. Would we want smoke to be readily able to be sold at a decent price, for ourselves, from someone else? If you care about decent prices and liquidity, then the short answer is "yes."
This means that if I want to be able to sell my smoke to someone for 0.2BTS, there needs to be someone to buy it at that. For most of you, selling any amount of smoke at a top buying price on the market, has meant that you're selling to me and that I am the person willing to pay that price that you seek. I may be an asshole, but I am providing you with an avenue to cash out. Consider that it's not me, but someone you actually like. ;-) Would you like for THEM to be able to cash out at a decent price, supposing they are actively buying at a decent price, to support your being able to cash out should you need to, at a decent price?
In order for prices to hike and remain up, we need to be willing to scratch one another's backs, despite our feelings towards each other. Money shouldn't be tied up with emotions and you shouldn't act emotionally with your money, if you don't have ample amounts of it to allow that wiggle room. I don't like a lot of you and I think a good handful of you are completely stupid. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop buying your smoke at top buy order prices. I'm still willing to provide liquidity for you.
TL;DR/Darian is an asshole so I didn't want to read all that shit. ;-)
Smoke price can rise, it needs to be a collective effort.
I have bought up to 0.1BTS and will continue to help the price hike, if others assist in that.
I am supporting the 0.1BTS line now, but would like it higher in time.
I would like to get smoke to around 0.2BTS by the end of July.
If you can, try to just buy $5 worth of smoke a month, until we've boosted the price to a point you're happy with.
